Surprise! (Part 1)

 2 weeks ago we took a wonderful surprise trip to Pensacola, Florida.  No, this trip was not a surprise to us, but rather to Adam's mom.  Mary Kay turns 60 this year (on Mother's Day to be exact).  All of us kids wanted to do something special for her.  So, Selwyn got her talked into a trip to Pensacola to visit Brian for a few days.   I don't think she needed much convincing to go.  The hard part was for all of us to keep quiet, because the whole gang was going to be there.  The Chicago Rash's and Ames Rash's arrived a few days ahead of Selwyn and Mary Kay.  When "surprise day" arrived we loaded everyone up, picked up balloons for the kiddos, and headed off to the airport.  It took Mary Kay FOREVER to notice us, but when she did, she was clearly surprised.
Ready and waiting
She spies us!
The kiddos yelling "Happy Birthday!"  

After the airport we went out for a nice lunch at an irish pub.  The rest of the week, well...just look at the pictures below.  You'll be able to tell that we had a wonderful time!
They had movie time every night after bath.
